(r)aúl’s New BFF?

Move over, Hugo.

It’s been awhile since we have seen Chavez land in Havana to visit his money at the socialist Disney Land.

And it seems another South American country is moving in on his fest friend.

According to the regime’s Radio Cadena Agromet :

Brazil’s Foreign Minister, Celso Luiz Nunes Amorim, said on Friday that his country wants to be Cuba’s number-one partner, and he announced new projects between both countries in the short term.

The Brazilian State owned oil company, Petrobras, also announced that it is working on a deal to explore the Gulf of Mexico waters off the coast of Cuba for oil and gas.:

HAVANA, May 30 – Brazilian state oil company Petrobras is studying a block in deep Cuban waters for possible exploration as part of broader cooperation with the Caribbean island, a top advisor to the company said on Friday.

“We are planning to cooperate not only in exploration and production, but lubricants, refining and training,” Andre Ghirardi told Reuters in Havana at a one-day meeting of Brazilian and Cuban businessmen.

“We are working on the possibility of exploring a block in the Gulf of Mexico, but negotiations have not ended, they are advancing,” he said.

It’s too early to tell if (r)aúl has dumped Hugo for a new best friend forever or if he’s just hedging his bets in case the Venezuelan petro house of cards comes crashing down.
